Adeptus Astartes Sketches by orcbruto Adeptus Astartes Sketches by orcbruto
Some sketches of power armors for Warhammer 40k Adeptus Astartes/ Space Marines. I tried to give them a more mobile look and a less bulky armor.

They look cool but Scout don't wear power armor sadly they wear carapaces like the storm troopers

Is it? I though they used some kind of partial power armor... looks so different from the one used by the Stormtroopers...

I agree not on the gay part but the part about not being as good part the straps and stuff holding things on are majore weaknes a well placed shot could have gear flying off the poor space marine and way more exsposed areas compered to the original but all in all vary realistik and hay some times you have to give somthing up to look good. I have read about how dificoult it can be to move in heavy armor like they now so I can see wsir your coming from. Forgot about this so I am jaming it in the end but having your servose out on display is like is like wairing a full suit of armor but not wairing the helmet just difeats the hole idea because if I can't kill you shooting your servose os the next best thing

They would have to change too many things to redesign Space Marines. If you try to make them practical, they'll end up looking more like Imperial Guard equipement straped to repainted Tau exosuit.
Reply
:iconklinkhammer:
KlinkHammer Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2013
but why not put more "power" to power armor?

its just looks like armor

I just tried to say that Tau is almost the only race that is quite practical and probably the only one that is really progressing in developement. The fact that they're one of the newest W40K races helps that a lot.
Tau are using Exosuits instead of Power Armors because Exo replaces wearers strength with its own instead of augmenting it. Anyone except Ork Nob or a Space Marine will benefit more from Exosuit(if Power Armor and Exosuit have same technological and power levels and sizes).
As on a matter of power - orcbruto's Power Armors have much more "serious" layer of artifical muscle than GW versions:)

Might be worth trying to find a sculptor to see about making a couple of models to show them off :)

Love it! The only thing i'd do is switch the scout and tactical pads around. The power armour makes more sense if it were to have the larger pad.
Reply
:iconorcbruto:
orcbruto Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Do you think so? But the pad would be quite problematic if the scout had to climb some ledge or a rope... wouldn't it?

I mean in your illustration the Scout has a larger pad than the tactical marine. I agreement with what you said above.

Power Armours HAVE to be "bulky"!

I agree for Terminator armors, but I think tactical marines and scouts have to move fast and search for cover, a heavy bulky armor-shaped tank would make them really bad at it =D

Fantasyartrocks21 Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I the mythos tactical marines are highly trained and able to move silently with the bulky power armour, it does not impend (?) their movements and as for cover, they're power armouur whilst deflect most bullets. And remember space marines are not human. But i do love your sketches very nice :D

:iconthrownik:
Thrownik Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012
scouts have light armour, but tacticals are some small human tanks

and i think Terminators figures have too small armour
that armour should give you +1 to toughness ^^

I really get most of what you have posted here, except for one thing... the tag on the left leg. Is that some federal "Do not remove tag under penalty of law" tag like what they have on mattresses and pillows?

Well, in Warhammer 40k world, this "tags" works as medals and certificate that the armor is working ok, they are called Purity Seals, and are just old papyrus-looking things glued to the armor with something that looks like candle wax

Probably this things get lost and fall from the armor at all times, but Space Marines sometimes have loads of them, all over the armor =D
